Shumpert, who tore his ACL during the first round of the NBA playoffs, told the Post his left knee is recovering nicely:
"It feels great," Shumpert said of his knee. "[The rehab] is going well. I've got a great training staff with me, and I trust them 100 percent. I'm going to them Monday through Friday, and on the weekends I just ice it and do regular stuff."
Shumpert was selected to the NBA's All-Rookie First Team after averaging 9.5 points with 1.71 steals per game during his first season out of Georgia Tech. The 6-foot-5, 220-pound guard routinely defended the opposition's best player.
